Mental health is important for everyone. Mental health affects how we feel, think, act and interact with the world around us. We all want to feel safe, seen, understood and connected

Just like our physical health we all can take proactive steps to care for our mental health.

Why is mental health important to you?

Mental health impacts your ability to enjoy life, your self-esteem, how you appreciate the ones around you, how you deal with life challenges (stress, distress) and your connections and sense of belonging with others and your community.

How can you support your mental health?

By building upon our strengths and skills within ourselves and creating meaningful connections with others, we build our resiliency. Resiliency is the ability to ‘bounce back’ after we experience hardships or stress.

Resiliency can be built through having supportive people to connect with, healthy relationships, and through self-care such as physical activity, proper sleep, making time for you and eating healthy, well balanced meals.
